OK, so the pacing is quite slow, but it is fun seeing what was one of the most popular TV series back in 1948. I also enjoyed seeing the vintage Network ID. Quite a nice episode!

Enjoyable, historical, and very much worth seeing.

I am so happy that some of the history of television remains. This would have aired when my dad was 8 years old. I love seeing a glimpse of children from his time.

Subject: A catalog site for Classic TV shows
If you like Classic TV from of the 50's, I found a catalog site that makes it easy to find and watch episodes streaming from at:

The Classic TV Channel

There are currently over 400 individual episodes of about 30 different programs, and the site is growing day by day. Check it out!

I take it since you are posting this same comment on ALL Howdy Doody show pages, that you must be promoting some sort of agenda.

Gee, there are only "white" kids in the peanut gallery, although I cannot go so far as to say there are not any "minorities" represented.

What would you suppose we do about this...feel extremely guilty? (only an option if we are white, right?) or allow what fond memories this show invokes to be spoiled and tainted by your STUPID need to inject POLITICAL CORRECTNESS into the simplest of pleasures here at this website?

I just wonder. Were any minorities such as afro-american children ever on the Peanut Gallery. I don not recall ever seeing any. I am curious to know.
